Brentford vs Sheffield Wednesday Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Brentford are set to snap a five-match winless run as they host Sheffield Wednesday in an English Championship fixture at Griffin Park. The Bees should have the upper hand against a Wednesday team that have struggled in the second half of the season.

Brentford Form


Brentford threw away a 2-0 lead as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Cardiff City in their previous Championship fixture. Early efforts from Luka Racic and Brian Mbeumo were cancelled out by the Welsh team.

Thomas Frank's men have drawn four of their last five matches and have won eight of their last 12 home matches. This run includes victories over Middlesbrough, Fulham and a 7-0 triumph over Luton.

Brentford News


Midfielders Mathias Jensen, Sergi Canos and Josh Clarke are part of a lengthy injury list for Brentford. Key defender Pontus Janssen is rated as doubtful and is unlikely to be risked for Saturday’s match.

Sheffield Wednesday Form


Sheffield Wednesday were disappointing in their previous Championship fixture as they suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Derby. They fell three goals behind before Josh Windass struck a consolation.

The Owls have seen their promotion campaign falter in recent weeks as they sit eight points adrift of the top six. Garry Monk’s men have claimed just one win in their last nine matches including defeats to Reading and bottom team Luton.

Sheffield Wednesday News


Sheffield Wednesday have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s match. Top scorer Steven Fletcher played 45 minutes against Derby on his return from injury and is expected to start at Griffin Park.
